You should change into your playing shoes once you arrive at the complex and then proceed to the field, do not wear them in from outside. If your shoes require cleaning, please do that before arriving at the facility.

You will be allowed to enter your dressing room 15 minutes prior to your rental time and we ask that you exit within 15 minutes afterwards so please change and shower as quickly as possible.
